Benefits To Having A Garbage Disposal

No matter how hard you try, you will always wind up with food scraps during food preparation and after meals. Whether it’s potato peels or leftover scraps, most people throw this debris into the trash, which winds up in a landfill. A garbage disposal eliminates much of the food waste and protects the environment by not contributing to the methane produced by our landfills.

  • A garbage disposal makes cleaning up after meals quicker since food debris gets washed down the drain while you’re doing dishes.
  • Putting food waste into the trash causes foul odours, and a garbage disposal eliminates this problem making for a fresher, odour-free kitchen.
  • Lastly, by not using as many plastic garbage bags, you’re doing your part to help the environment.

Garbage Disposal Maintenance

A garbage disposal is an indispensable tool when it’s running properly. It keeps your kitchen free from food odours, makes cleanup easier, and is better for the environment than throwing away plastic trash bags. However, like any machine, it requires regular maintenance to ensure it runs smoothly. Here are a few tips to keep your disposal running efficiently.

  • Use Plenty Of Water: When running your garbage disposal, it’s helpful to run water while it’s processing food. Let the water continue to run for about 20 seconds after the waste has been chopped up to flush the pipes thoroughly. Experts say to use cold water because hot water can liquify fats, causing them to stick to the disposal’s blades.
  • Avoid Hard Or Fibrous Foods: The average garbage disposal doesn’t grind foods like hard seeds, popcorn kernels, bones, etc. very well. Also, avoid grinding foods like onion skins, eggshells, corn husks, or any other fibrous food because the fibres can wrap around the blades, causing a jam.
  • Clean The Inside: Sludge and debris build up in the disposal with use, so use baking soda and vinegar to thoroughly clean the inside of the system to keep it running smoothly and to avoid odour.

Signs It’s Time To Replace Your Garbage Disposal

  • Strange Noise: All garbage disposals make noise, but if yours makes one you’ve not heard before, it could indicate a developing problem.
  • Foul Odors: Failing to clean your garbage disposal thoroughly leads to foul odours, but if you’ve cleaned the system and the smell persists, it may be time to swap out the old unit for a new one.
  • Water Leaks: The average garbage disposal lasts from 8-10 years, and over time, the unit develops cracks which lead to leaks. When the system leaks, it’s time for a replacement unit.
